A Cocktail Masterclass at the Cosy Club in Bournemouth is my idea of a great night out, I accepted my invitation via Bournemouth Bloggers almost as soon as the email hit my inbox. If you havn't been before it really is something a little different from the norm. You will find it at 34 Old Christchurch Rd, so also very convenient for a quick break during a shopping spree in the town.
I love the eclectic, slightly deco style, that changes on each floor, the Manager told us its a theme used throughout their branches.
Other branches can be found in Salisbury,Cheltenham, Bath, Birmingham, Bristol,Cardiff, Cheltenham,Coventry, Derby, Exeter, Ipswich, Leeds, Lincoln, Liverpool, Manchester, Worcester and York.
It is somewhere you can go to enjoy just a coffee and cake, sandwiches, or choose from the extensive brunch menu, or go all out and order something more substantial from the main menu.
Our welcome was super cute with a message written in tiles on a scrabble board, plenty of other games are stashed on shelves to keep the clientele amused. Ironic coming from a blogger but it is so nice to see this kind of thing being encouraged. So often, we go out and see groups of people not talking to each other but individually engrossed in their phones.
The staff were extremely friendly and wasted no time in ensuring we all had the English Rose cocktail in our hands. It was delicious, but kind of tricky to drink with all the rose petals floating on the top.
Next we all had a go at cocktail making, good fun but I am better at the tasting part! Ewelina and I
made the Cherry Bakewell Cocktail delicious but a little sweet for me. Shortly after the cocktail making session a selection of food arrived.
The food was served tapas style so we all gathered around the table and decided on a selection. It included mac and cheese, avocado toast, fish finger and chips, mini burgers and some different looking scotch eggs, to name but a few. I later I found out scotch egg had been made with black pudding (so that accounted for the colour).
The Cosy Club is a great place for private events as it split over three floors, the top floor includes an open air section and I was gutted to learn they have been showing films throughout the summer. If you have yet to book a your works Christmas function then go and have a look around The Cosy Club it could work for you.
The staff were all super friendly so if you have an idea for a function go and have a chat, Im sure they will go out of their way to accommodate you.
Thank you Cosy Club for inviting the Bournemouth Bloggers and also for our Cosy Club slippers that I wear with pride.
